Trying to relocate a vehicle without driving it can be a challenge for any individual without the right equipment. By hiring a reputable transport company for car shipping services, you can guarantee the safe delivery of your vehicle. Fortunately, it isn’t hard to find a reputable transport company near you. In fact, A1 Auto Transport is one of the leading transport companies in the State of California.
To ship your car to another state or country, consider enclosed transport services. Enclosed shipping offers more protection than open air methods. The vehicle is placed and secured inside a large shipping container. This method of transport also lets the customer ship other household goods along with the vehicle. If you don’t need all the space provided by the shipping container, you can split the remaining space and cost with another individual shipping to the same place.
Preparing the Vehicle for Enclosed Transport Is Important
- Check the gas reading. If there is more than 1/4 of a tank, the vehicle and those caring for the transport are put at risk.
- Make sure any household items being shipped are packed appropriately and labeled.
- The vehicle should be in good condition. Make sure there aren’t any leaks and even take the car in for maintenance before the transport.
- Top off the fluids and check the tire pressure.
- Take pictures of your car and make a list of any visible marks such as scratches or dents.
How Much Do Enclosed Shipping Services Cost?
There are many factors that affect the cost of enclosed transport. Every transport company sets their own rates. Transporters like to present their customers with various options. Fortunately, their services are all known for being cost effective and budget friendly. When enclosed services are chosen, a quote is given after the transporter receives the make and model of the car along with other similar details. The weight of all items being shipped will also greatly affect the cost.
